Vulture Club

We have quite the gang: four black vultures and two turkey vultures. All of these native birds have been injured and are non-releasable, but have found a home at The Creature Conservancy via licensed rehabilitators and veterinary hospitals.

In the summer of 2011 work began to construct a suitable habitat for them. They now live in an enclosure so appealing that the wild turkey vultures would like to join them (see photos below!). Our resident vultures happily share their quarters with a pair of young muntjac (barking deer).

As soon as the last remaining touches are made to the aviary, an additional summer enclosure will be constructed adjacent to the entry. This smaller space will house a variety of different animals at different times: iguanas, sloths, armadillos, etc. Every one deserves a change of scenery from time to time!
